Beach Vacation

Just thought I would share a few pix from our wonderful beach vacation.  Here is our lovely room...

Adeline loved to sit on this glider...she loves all things that rock.  Grandma loves to be anywhere Adeline is.


Addie with her first taste of the adventures of bike riding.  The first time, she fell asleep for most of the ride.  The second time, she kept saying, "Wheeee!"  And, yeah, the helmet didn't last...sorry daddy.


We all had lots of time for reading (I read an entire book...it was wonderful).  Post coming soon with reviews of the books I have read over the past few weeks....


Adeline went away with Grandpa (paw-paw) every morning while the rest of us got some sleep (Addie apparently thought playing and rocking with grandma were much bigger priorities than sleeping, much to our chagrin).  She LOVED to watch the ocean.  He had a hard time getting here away from there.  In the picture below, they are people watching while grandma and I enjoyed some shopping.  

Thanks, mom and dad, we had a blast!

A little one not interested in sleeping...sounds familiar. :oP

During our last beach vacation (Natalia was 18 mos.) she was in the same room as my hubby and I, and proceeded to wake up earlier and earlier each morning...6am, 5am, 3:30! Pete was a gem and often took her for a walk to the beach to tire her out, then come back for some more Z's.

Sounds like a very relaxing and fun trip! I'm only slightly jealous! :)

Awww, it looks like a beautiful vacay! I think I had that same shirt, but in green. :) I love that picture of you and Patrick. Such a pretty background, and the subjects are too shabby either!

your time at the beach sounds wonderful and relaxing. i am glad you got away for a bit. i can't wait to hear about the books you've been reading, not that i have had much time to read lately but i can always add more books to my "to read" list.

btw - mauryn doesn't keep her helmet on when we bike either. she always wants it on but a few minutes in she pulls it off. some day...

What a great bonding time with grandma and grandpa. Sounds like you all had a great trip (despite the sleepless toddler!).

It sounds just lovely. I'm glad you enjoyed it. It has been too long since I've been to the beach!
